There's been no shortage of interest in our boys this week.

The nib Newcastle Knights attract plenty of media attention and we've pulled together the best of it in case you missed any of the news.

Here's what our boys got up to this week:


Meet Bradman Best.

Be The Player: Week 8

He's doesn't turn 18 until August but already he's a prospect earmarked for a bright future in the NRL.

Under the NRL rules, this exciting centre can't make his first-grade debut until he turns 18 but those who have seen him play, believe it's just a matter of time.

Best himself, isn't buying into the hype.

"I've still got another year in SG Ball and I want to play NSW Under 18's again if I can but hopefully, I can work my way into the Under 20's and hold my own and maybe, at the back-end of the year if I'm doing okay, try and play some NSW Cup as well," Best told The Newcastle Herald.

Having played Australian Schoolboys last year, Best has joined the Knights for the final block of NRL pre-season training.

Due to an injured MCL, Best has been restricted in what he can do but relishing the chance to mix it with the big boys.

The Woy Woy product had a taste of NRL training last year when he was invited to join the team for a few days.

It was a glimpse into the hard work that goes into being a professional athlete and nice stepping stone for a youngster who will soon be training fulltime.

Late last year, Best extended his contract until the end of 2022, locking him into the Club long-term.

Best said it was an easy decision to make.

"I was happy to sign and commit here for another four years," he said.

"I had a few offers from other clubs but I couldn't see myself going anywhere else because the club has been so good to me.

"Getting to train with the NRL boys – it's mad. You just learn so much."
